We present Whose Line Is It Anyway? and here's your chairman, Clive Anderson:

Hello and welcome to Whose Line Is It Anyway? a radio programme of off-the-cuff inspiration, ad lib improvisation, extemporisation, and perhaps some other readings from Roget's Thesaurus. Well, this is the end of the series, so we all want to go out with a bang, but first we must do the show. As usual we have participating:

  • Stephen Fry, the writer, humourist and all-round swot
  • And our other stalwart, getting ready even now to wart our stals, the Battler of Largs himself, John Sessions
  • Our two guests are Jon Glover of Week Ending and Spitting Image fame
  • And finally a very popular young impressionist, in the tradition of Mike Yarwood and Camille Pissarro, Rory Bremner
